It was about this time three years ago, when barely anyone could contain their excitement for Christopher Nolan‘s “Inception.” The film was just a couple weeks away from release and subsequently blowing minds. The puzzle box blockbuster, perhaps one of the smarter summer movies to come along in quite a few years, managed to take dreams and multiple levels of reality, and make them breathlessly linear and easy to navigate. It was a pretty magnificent thrill ride all around but the nearly perfectly constructed movie wasn’t without it’s minor flaws.
One of them that many discussed was the movie’s weirdly non-sexual atmosphere, a bit odd for a movie dealing with fantasies and a tortured romance at its core. The film also required a lot of exposition to keep things moving along and much of that came via Ellen Page‘s Ariadne, named after the character from Greek myth who was put in charge of labyrinths by the King Of Crete. In ‘Inception’ she functions as a sort of guide through the complex world of “Inception,” asking a lot of questions and getting answers from Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Cobb.
Strung all together, it makes the device look far worse that it actually is but it’s still an amusing way to look at the movie. Take it in below. [via AV Club]
